o collusion:
O-Ee-Yah!
Eoh-Ah!

The fat cats toast.
The monkeys roost.
The witch is dry.
The waters rise
under the black castle.

The white house —

sewage is backed up:
obstruction.

Anew

a

  new
phase after running in place for
so long
to the old dance and song
hall mark
when the toggle lit the dark
horse laugh
out loud as you canter the course
anew

Sun Day

E

ggs on the equinox,
capsules of rebirth
hidden in emergent
grass by the Eostre
bunny —
sunny
resurrection day
for the sun from the cross:
primeval darkness
shuns the festival light.

Wake

M

ove
to, not fro.
Go !

For the past
mistakes haunt only
memory;

therefore, live for now,
attending all the moments
while the heart pumps blood

and air rushes in and out
of the chest.  Let the mind inhabit
reality, not magic.

Because fate touches
not parenthetical life
discontinuous.

Randomness
marks the days between
moony sleep,

fain
to swallow
day.

Fiery Edges

T

he thousand words in the Tharpe-Heezen map
of the seafloor argue for jigsaw crust;
a tattered softball, pieces of skin wrapped
and Frankenstein-stitched where the ridges thrust
up, or sometimes overlap in trenches
cut during many an inning out back,
a global picture of fiery edges:
where orange magma bubbles fade to black
basalt mounds when converging plates buckle
or subduct back into melt, underground;
or rifts cause continents to drift around —
the boundaries dynamic, in tussle.
       Mountains rise and fall; oceans spread, recede;
       volcanoes, earthquakes, and geysers:     repeat.
